Nisa retailers are unconcerned following an IT glitch which caused availability issues in Co-ops across the south-east.

The glitch on 12 March affected Co-op’s Thurrock depot and disrupted deliveries in the region. A Co-op spokesman confirmed the warehouse is now fully operational, with “products being delivered to stores as quickly as possible”.

Siva Thievanayagan, who runs five Nisa shops in Peterborough, was not worried his supply could be affected by similar issues in the future.

He told RN: “Everyone has IT glitches and I’ve experienced this myself when my till has stopped working.”
